Changing Again

I haven't had much time to blog this week with the crazy weather that we are having in Kansas. We are still in need of moisture here in the state, but it is probably a good thing we missed the more significant moisture, otherwise we would've ended up with a HUGE amount of ice in southern Kansas and 5 or 10 inches of snow elsewhere. Oklahoma has been hit very hard the last few days with the freezing rain. They declared a state of emergency for Oklahoma with power outages all over the place. The ice accumulation on the pine cone gives you some idea of how bad the conditions are in the Oklahoma City area.

We haven't had much in the way of active weather this month, but it looks like January will end on a quiet note. It still looks as if the first part of February will be active with another system rolling out of the west sometime next week. I don't think it will be a major storm system, but the computers have been struggling with the extended forecast lately. We haven't had a major winter storm this winter, and it is possible we won't have one at all this winter. But we still have several more weeks of winter to get through and I know we haven't seen the last of the snow yet. As soon as I have a definite feeling on the rest of the season, I'll be sure to post it on the blog. Hope the rest of the week treats you well.
